Pricey but good product
Good coverage for a powder foundation. Comes in a great range of shades to suit most skin tones. Packaging is study and comes with a good sized mirror. I didn't have any issues with this product however I don't know if I would repurchase due to the price point.

Great powder!Last for ages, increases the staying powder of your foundation and applies really nicely. I never felt it was too cakey and its great on its own or paired with a foundation
Best powder foundationi just bought a new one of this powder. It reminds me again how good it is and i cannot stop using it. it is so perfect for everyday use or even for glam use.
Great powder keeps makeup on longer!i use this everyday! keeps foundation into place!
holy grailI dont think I will ever get sick of this powder, love it! its worth the price as it lasts a long time and a little truly does go a long way, also kuddos to MAC for the colour selection
Not badThis has a really good coverage to it, and is totally buildable as well! For me I find it can be drying on my skin on it's own, I definitely find it works better for me on top of a light liquid foundation. Would reccomend though
Love this!!I love this powder! I use it over the top of the studio fix fluid as I love a full coverage look and this product is great!! Have purchased over and over again
Ny new go-to powder!I used to use Clinique Stay Matte powders but they never matched my skin tone. I decided to purchase this after reading reviews and WOW I have been missing out! I’ve never been able to use powder without applying liquid foundation first, but MAC has changed that! I used this powder without liquid foundation for about 12 hours and the only thing required was a touch up on my nose area after 5 hours. Have recommended this product to everyone since the first day I used it!
Only Powder You NeedI have been using this powder both for on top of my foundation and just on its own for years. It gives you flawless, matte, long lasting, all day coverage - even after I work out at the gym, it stays put! It is perfect for holidays in the heat and warm climates (like QLD) as it is humidity proof.
love it not cakeyuse in combination with or without foundation. with foundations makes a super full coverage makeup look minus the cakieness, also helps my foundation stay put and not move or feel oily. use without foundation and it makes a nice not too full coverage easy reddness remover for the quick on the go or light makeup day look
The holy grail of compactsFor years I used this as my only foundation, the coverage it gives is almost better than liquid. My skin doesn’t react to it and it really holds down the shine.
Favourite powderI say this is my favourite powder but it’s actually the only one I’ve ever liked. It’s not drying, gives awesome coverage without being cakey, and on me it looks so natural. It lasts forever too.
Love itI have been using this powder for years and have not been able to find a similar product. I use it ontop of my liquid foundation for a full coverage look or on its own for a light natural coverage. My acne scars are visible through it on its own.
Excellent powder foundationHave owned this powder foundation and using it for years. It is great for full coverage look. I either use it alone as a foundation or sparingly for setting my liquid foundation. Recommend to people looking for a matte look.
Great for a natural makeup look!Bought this and was surprised that the coverage is really good. I wear it on its own or to set a foundation for extra coverage. great for everyday use as it's not heavy and looks very natural. I'd say its more of like medium coverage coz my dark pigmentation still peeks through it. great for travelling and on the go moments as it is compact and comes with a mirror inside. what I do love about this too is that there's a separate compartment for the sponge that it comes with which is great if you don't like to remove the sponge and want to keep it for emergency sitch. overall satisfied with the product and highly recommend!
Great for everyday makeupThis powder looks good on its own. I will use this if i need to do a quick makeup and it last all day. It does look a bit powdery at first but it melts into your skin as the day goes by. So i swear by this powder!
Beautiful, Buildable + BlendableSets foundation gorgeously
Wears on it's own beautifully for a ligther during the day coverage.
Have given this to my sisters, friends, my partners daughter to borrow from time to time to show them how good it is because of how they always comment on how they like the look of my makeup & they loved it too.
Lasts for a very long time, yes it is on the more expensive side but it is a very generous sized compact & lasts me atleast a few months at a time so I find it good value for money.
Built to lasti have repurchased this powder way too many times, I love its consistency and the range of colours on offer. Last all day and gives a matte finish
FavouriteHave used this powder for years, love that i can apply it in so many ways - if I'm wanting light or fuller coverage. I use this with the MAC Setting Spray and it lasts all day and gives a nice matte finish.
The best!I love using this for when i need a bit of extra coverage when my skin is bad.. and for that it works so well! I've never tried it on the naked skin, only ever as a setting powder but i love it for that
Great powder!I only use this powder on top of my foundation on special days, as I don’t want to put too many things on my skin all the tome! Leaves skin flawless. Not a huge MAC fan, but I love this powder and their ruby woo lipstick!
Gorgeous resultI prefer a matte look with my foundation but have found some powders make your skin look either dry, gray or too cakey.
This powder provides a flawless finish and makes your skin look lovely and radiant.
I find you can use this without a liquid base for a little bit of something on your face.
Yes!This is such a great product. It can be used over foundation or literally on it's one for the make up cases.. you don't need a lot of it either!
Airbrush Look!This is the best powder I have ever used. It is great to add an airbrush look on top of foundation but also sits really nicely on those 'no makeup' days as a bit of coverage. I have very oily skin and this has worked wonders.
Second time purchase - won't ever changeThis is my second time purchasing this powder foundation, and I absolutely love it. My first purchase lasted easily 3 years as I just use a tiny bit to set in my liquid foundation. I have very oily skin and have never had any issues with this foundation moving. It looks natural and does not make you look 'dry', you can still go for a dewy look.
Great Setting PowderThis creates a great flawless finish. Recommended by my daughter and it's the best I've ever worn. Lasts all day. I am over 60 and it doesn't settle into fine lines like some. Love it!
Using for 10 yearsThis is the best powder on the market! I have used for 10+ years and it never fails. The best for setting your foundation or wearing on it’s own. You can build it up or just use for a light coverage over your moisturiser or primer. Take it everywhere with me and just about to purchase a new one.
Full coverageI have been using this product for over 10 years now and will never change. Love the coverage and the way it works with the liquid foundation. They make a perfect pair. Lasts all day and never need to re-apply.
Perfect powder foundationLove this product! Firstly, the MAC shade range is perfection, I’m NC10 and there are many other brands that I just can’t use for base products as they are just too orange on my skin. Love this powder for days off when I just can’t bring myself to slather goo on my face but still want to look better than no makeup. Also use this on top of a spf50 bb cream for a great medium to full coverage but natural looking base with sun protection. Buffs into the skin beautifully and melts in with your natural oils to give a nice satin finish.
Overall okayI purchased this in addition with my MAC liquid foundation which was nice to have a colour match, although it was a bit too ‘cakey’ for me and seemed to settle in fine lines. I now keep this in my handbag for light touch ups on the go.
very medicorenot sure if i would ever buy this again because of the price
Looks dewy after a whileI wear this by itself, I don’t use it to set a foundation ( if I needed full coverage I would) but I find with my sigma F80 flat kabuki I stipple it on and then just dap a powder brush back into it and go back over it looks nice BUT the magic happens once it’s been on for a couple of hours. Stunning! For me (normal skin maybe a tad oily in the t-zone) it becomes so beautifully dewy, I look like I have glass skin! Love it.
All time fav!i have repurchased this powder way too many times, I love its consistency and the range of colours on offer. Last all day and gives a matte finish
Great coverage and long wearingFantastic long wearing coverage. Easy to apply and a large range of colours. A great alternative to liquid foundation I have found, much easier to apply.
FavThis is my favourite powder Foundation of all time. Long wearing considering my oily skin, great coverage and no cakeyness.
My every day powderI have used this powder with both the Mac foundation & Estée Lauder and I love it for both. Great finishing powder I use every day. I love it also because it last for ages as well and never makes my skin go flakey or oily
Good setting powderUsed to use this daily as a stand-alone foundation. After trying other products, I've found this alone made me feel quite oily and the transfer was fairly bad. I still use this powder as a setting powder under my eyes and on my T-Zone and that works perfectly for me.
Great for light coverageThis foundation is great to either top up its liquid counterpart or to use as foundation on its own. It isn’t too heavy and provides great coverage, covering uneven skin tone, pimples and breakouts. Good staple to always have in your collection.
Great coverage but cakeyThis foundation has good coverage but does not look natural at all, use in conjunction with mac fix plus and you will not regret it. It helps with the cakeiness
Wouldn't wear studiofix without itThis is an amazing set powder, it helps to control the t-zone section when applying my studio fix liquid foundation. Also works nicely with a few other foundations or even worn alone. Great for touch up's and on the go application
Great powderHigh coverage and a great finish. Great for on the go touch ups.
Used to be a favouriteI have combination skin and this used to be a favourite powder foundation of mine. MAC makes them in a great variety of shades (in a slightly confusing shade name range - ie my shade is NC30 which is “Neutral Cool” but it’s actually for warm skin tones. AdoreBeauty has been really considerate in putting the description of the shade (Golden) in the product information). It has good medium coverage and it does the trick, however, I’ve since found better powder foundations that don’t look as powdery when applied to the skin.
My Favorite Pressed PowderBy far the best pressed powder I've used. Skin look flawless with out a cakey feel.
GoodI like the coverage and the way it sits on my skin but I have two problems with it. A) It tends to make me oily B) It transfers easy. Besudes that I really do like it
Super high coverageI got the shade NC15 and it's slightly lighter than the Studio Fix liquid - but it worked out fine with a bit of extra bronzer. I have pretty red/blotchy skin that is very dry and it have loved this foundation! I definitely have to make sure my skin is exfoliated and moisturised, so there's no dry patches, but the extra effort is worth it for the coverage! Definitely recommend.
High coverageHigh coverage powder, great for achieving a full coverage.
Coverage and LongevityLove this powder for its instant coverage and longevity. I have normal to dry skin and after apply a spritz Fix+ all over just to diffuse the powdery finish and keep my hydrated.
Too heavy for me but still goodThis product is great if you like a very "done" up face. It provides great coverage, is buildable (but does cake so be careful).
Great coverage for day or nightI have been using Studio Fix as my foundation for years now and love it.
I have fair and uneven skin tone with a few light sun spots and freckles. So I like to have some coverage most days - without looking like I have a full face of make up. Studio fix has been great for my skin. On days when I just want light coverage, its perfect.
For times when I want more coverage and want to wear a little more make up, I use a small amount of primer or serum on my skin so that Studio Fix is longer lasting and I can apply the powder more like an all over foundation. Its super easy to blend and it long lasting for big nights on the town.
Pricey but worth itI work out doors and not allowed to wear makeup (but I do anyway) so instead of wearing liquid foundation I use this, and it last all day, it does melt off in some areas but I am sweating and working hard in the sun, so I’m amazed it stays on through that!
Can't go wrongThis is the BEST powder Foundation Ever!!
It seems pricey but the size of the compact & how little you need to get fantastic coverage it is actually great value for money.
Makes pores disappear, helps keep shine/oiliness at bay & lasts all day.
Love the coverage of it with the lightweight feel.
Is amazing with or without foundation/bb cream underneath.
So happy AB have Mac available now, as I used to have to order from 2 places to get my skincare & makeup so this makes life so much easier!!
U guys are the best.....don't ever change
LoveI use this daily over my studio fix foundation and love it, it really evens out the look and gives that buffered finish.
the only powder foundation I own, for good reasonThis is such a beautiful powder foundation. It doesn’t cling to any dry patches of skin and doesn’t go cakey throughout the day. The coverage is really good and it can be built up if desired. The colour match is also great. Definitely recommend this!
Great every dayI use this product as my every day foundation instead of a cream foundation . Gives great coverage but feels light on the skin
For evening or going out I prefer a cream foundation and apply the Mac lightly over the top to eliminate oil
Believe the HypeI use this almost everyday. It doesn't clog my pores, doesn't cake and feels nice on my sensitive skin. It doesn't stay matte all day, but then mostly nothing does for me. I apply it with a powder brush and use the sponge in the compact for touch ups during the day which helps with oily skin.
GreatGreat coverage and flawless finish
Did not live up to the hypeI bought this because it's always said to be such a HG powder foundation especially for oilier complexions. As a combination girl this sounded fine to me as I don't think I am exceedingly oily.
Unfortunately, I cannot see the appeal. No matter what base I use this turns me into an oil slick.
Alone on bare skin, I will be proper oily within 2-3 hours. On top of a primer, again 2-3 hours. On top of my most mattifying primer, 5 hours which doesn't seem bad but this primer keeps me matte until I wash it off. I really gave this a fair shot and even found on top of liquid foundations it would encourage unnecessary oil production.
I am so disappointed because of how much it was and have passed it on to someone else. Would personally not recommend.
My go toGreat powder foundation - awesome coverage, good on its own or over a stick or liquid foundation (depending on the coverage you want). Great for touch ups too. Works well with my oily skin.
My go to!This powder foundation is my go to in my make up collection! It always lasts, has great coverage and helps to mattify my skin! Would definitely reccomend.
Great for Full Coverage!I love to use this powder for a full coverage look. It applies easily and stays put all day long and makes the staying power of my foundation when used over the top, stay in place even longer than without it! A great staple in my make up kit!
Best coverage!I have been using studio Fix Powder for years. There have been times where I have strayed and decided to try something new - each time I regret it. Studio fix is long lasting and easy to build. Stays on all day with minimal shine!
Nice option for oily skinGreat for oily skin, I have used this alone and over liquid foundation - both worked great. The powder is also great for touchups. To avoid looking really powdery, I always follow with MAC fix+ to freshen up and give back a bit of moisture to look more natural.
AmazingA staple in my makeup routine, provides full coverage and sets my makeup in place all day!
Pretty goodThis is a good powder as far as they go. Helps my foundation sit nicer too.
Didnt like itI didn't like this powder, i found it wore off very quickly and didnt provide full coverage over unless i really packed it on
a great addition to prolong your makeupI have recently cut a fringe and with a relatively oily forehead, I find my fringe doesn't stay clean for long. A friend suggested a this powder and I managed to match it perfectly to my foundation so it adds no extra colour, just a matte finish and less shine that helps a great deal in the summer! My fringe lasts an extra day if I reapply powder in the afternoon.
I love this powderI used to wear this over my studio foundation on nights out for extra coverage and it gave flawless looking skin that lasted without wearing off. took ages to hit pan as well. only took off a star because I wish it were CF
I wanted to like thisbut I found it to be sticky/heavy feeling on the skin and provided only a light coverage. it also oxidised on my skin and went orange
Surprisingly goodI must say I have had issues with other MAC foundations (particularly in the summer heat). However this one has surprised me. Good coverage without looking cakey. Not as yellow as some of the other MAC foundations so suits my close to neutral skin. And feels nice on. Very happy!
A very good powder foundation...This is an excellent product - doesn't cake and glides on really smoothly. Given how many other powder foundations there are out there and how expensive they are, this product is really a gem. I have skin that's prone to oil, especially in my T-Zone, but this has a great matte effect to tamp that down.
such good coverage!This powder gives such full coverage and is long lasting. I don't find that it settles into lines or highlights any dry patches.
PerfectionSmoothest powder! I use this as a setting powder & touch of extra coverage over liquid foundation & concealer. Love it!!
LoveReally enjoy this powder as it has great coverage
love!!!!This is such a great product!! Its so easy to apply and really hides my oily skin, while making my skin look great
Love it!I use this product every single day either over my studio fix liquid foundation or simply over a BB cream to buffer out any creases, blotchiness, or brush marks etc.
When using this with a sponge it really gives that flawless airbrushed finish and packs down over blemishes to smooth out skin. I have dry skin and it doesnt make it any worse, my only negative is that it isnt a large pan for the price considering how fast it runs out. Maybe I just use a lot each day but I would say I get a new one each month or two at the very least. Its that one product that I swear by so its worth it still!
Game changerBest powder i’ve ever used! I use it over a liquid foundation, it makes my skin look flawless, even if i have a few breakouts!
LoveReally good oil absorbing powder
Buildable powderI usually tend to use this powder through my T section to take away some of the shine and it really helps to stay my make up for a longer wear, especially under the eyes, my make up can tend to bleed a bit under the eyes and dusting a touch of this helps prevent that.
amazing shade range so extra points because its a powder foudantionThis powder had a good price compared to some others and turned out to be much better in terms of colour range, coverage, and it also stayed on all day/night. Great for oily skin/breakouts for me.
Full coverage powderThis is the most coverage i have ever seen in a powder. I love to use it alone over a primer for full coverage that rivals liquid foundation. I have dry skin so I apply a lot of moisturiser first. But its amazing for touch ups throughout the day or to give a flawless finish on top of any liquid foundation.
Holy Grail Powder FoundationI have used this powder for YEARS! Even though I have tried other brands I always keep coming back to this one. Because i like a full coverage look, I use it on top of liquid foundation to set, but also keep it in my bag for any day time blots. It is also great for covering blemishes as you can just use your fingers to dab it on a bit thicker.
Definitely the best foundation powder i have ever used!
WonderfulBought this the other week and this has pretty much replaced my liquid foundation for everyday wear. Takes seriously about 2 minutes to apply and covers all blemishes and redness, and doesn’t look at all cakey or grainy. It doesn’t even shift from habitually touching the nose or face area, just looks perfect like skin, it’s so nice and light! Sheer to medium coverage but buildable. I’ve noticed I get a bit oily after a while but just a bit of powder and it goes away. Can not recommend enough! Absolutely love it!
GreatI wear this over my MAC foundation and this works perfectly, great colour and coverage.
I also wear this on it's own when I'm just needing a lighter more natural coverage and it also works great!
That's why it's a cult favourite...SHADE: NC40
MY SKIN: medium - tan, sensitive, dry, dry patches, redness.
This is great on it's own or on top of foundation for extra coverage. True to colour, no flashback and not 'cake-y'
Before I had dry patches or when I don't have dry patches, this gave a great natural and even finish on my skin - with or without foundation beneath it.
Nowadays I use it to set any concealed spots as it gives that little bit of extra coverage and deters the concealer to move and it does the job PERFECTLY!
STAPLEI love MAC's Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation. I cannot even tell you how many compacts I would have gone through over the years. I usually set my Studio Fix Fluid foundation with this powder - HELLO makeup that will last ALL day! (If you are after a full-coverage look!) I keep this compact in my bag and use the included sponge to touch up/blot my face during the day. This is a foundation in it's own right and can be used alone.
Great powder foundationI don't use this a a foundation - I use to set my sheer foundation in areas that will get oily throughout the day or to touch up during the day. LOVE this product as it is so convenient.
Great staying power even on oily skinThis is the only powder foundation I swear by. This stuff is amazing. It only takes a couple of swipes to apply and give a good amount of coverage. This also stays on all day even on my oily skin. This is the only powder foundation I have tried that doesn't leave me looking like an oil slick by the middle of the day. Can't recommend this enough,
A favouriteGreat for days when you want a sheer coverage on its own or use a setting powder with your favourite foundation.
Great to use as a setting powderI use this as a setting powder when I also want to add more coverage. Increases longevity and reduces shine when applied over liquid foundation. I have oily/combination skin
AmazingReally great setting powder for extra coverage and oil absorbing
Great for longwear!I have been using this Powder off and on for years! It is perfect for those long days or nights that you want your make up to stay on perfectly. It literally hides all imperfections and every time I wear this powder I get compliments on how flawless my skin looks!
Fantastic powderMac is a fantastic brand... This powder I have been using for years. Fantastic coverage and great for oily skin. Mac has a great colour range too and suitable for my very pale skin!
Great coverage for spotsI use this as an over the top light powder and for help with stubborn spots with a concealer . This is a lovely buildable coverage powder and great for nights out for that Matte finish
Perfect buildable coverage for oily skinI have been using MAC's Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation since I started wearing makeup, many, many moons ago. No matter which foundation I try, I always come back to this as my trusted staple. Why? It's the only powder foundation that doesn't appear 'cakey' on my oily/combination skin. I use a light, fragrance free moisturiser mixed with two drops of a facial oil as my base before applying this over the top. The finish combined with the facial oil is divine - a very 'natural, my skin-but-better look'. The best part is, it's buildable, so I can always turn up the coverage when my skin needs a bit more help. Love!
